Abstract: 

Graphene, a novel class of carbon nanostructures, has great promise for use as sorbent materials because of its ultrahigh specific surface area. A new method using reduced graphene oxide (RGO) as sorbent was developed for the preconcentration of trace amounts of zinc (Zn) to its determination by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Zinc could be adsorbed quantitatively on RGO in the pH range of 1–9, and then eluted completely with 0.5 mL of 0.1 mol L-1 HCl. Some effective parameters on the extraction were selected and optimized. Under optimum conditions, the calibration graph was linear in the concentration range of 0.2-15 mg L-1 with a detection limit of 0.14 mg L-1 with an enrichment factor of 100.12. The relative standard deviation for ten replicate measurements of 10 mg L-1 of Zn was 0.58%, respectively. The proposed method was successfully applied in the analysis of rock and vegetable samples. Good spiked recoveries over the range of 99.9-100% were obtained. This work not only proposes a useful method for sample preconcentration, but also reveals the great potential of graphene as an excellent sorbent material in analytical processes.
